Ingredient spotlight: Curcumin

Curcumin, the principal curcuminoid found in turmeric, is considered to be the most active component within the plant. The extract has been revered in ancient Ayurvedic practices for its medicinal properties for thousands of years, and it is one of the most thoroughly researched compounds today.

Curcumin: benefits and key actions

  • Curcumin is known for its antioxidant properties, which help protect the body against oxidative stress caused by free radicals.
  • Curcumin supplementation helps to sustain the lining of your blood vessels, known as the endothelium, which is essential for supporting regular heart function.
  • Studies have shown that curcumin may cross the blood-brain barrier and exert neuroprotective effects. Curcumin is also known to boost cognition; improving memory and attention span in a study by UCLA.
  • Curcumin has been studied for its potential benefits when it comes to digestive health and may help improve gut health by interacting with gut bacteria and enhancing antioxidant activity.

MitoQ curcumin contains 400mg of Longvida® Optimized Curcumin® extract

In its natural form, curcumin is not soluble in water and is poorly absorbed by the gut. This means that large doses are required to achieve health benefits. Longvida Optimized Curcumin® was developed by university neuroscientists to deliver unglucuronidated (free) curcumin. As a highly bioavailable form of curcumin, Longvida® Optimized Curcumin® bypasses the initial stages of digestion to provide a more efficacious approach to antioxidant supplementation.

Clinical human bioavailability data has found Longvida® to be an incredible 65 to 100 times more bioavailable than unformulated curcumin. One ground-breaking finding over the course of several bioavailability studies, shows that dosing of Longvida® leads to clinically significant levels of free (not inactivated or bound) curcumin in the bloodstream and in multiple organs, including the brain and digestive system. This makes Longvida® Optimized Curcumin the most advanced and bioavailable curcumin formulation available.

In clinical trials, the supplementation of Longvida® Optimized Curcumin® was shown to:

  • Support mental and emotional wellbeing, resulting in a 17% reduction in anxiety.
  • Reduce fatigue by 15% in older adults
  • Improve working memory by 25%
  • Reduce irritability by 64%
  • Improve enzyme catalase by 75%

Where is it sourced?
